Between the mid-'90s and the early '00s, Korn was the de facto nu metal band, spawning the nu metal movement and even the term itself; armies of disenfranchised 13-year-old fans flocked to stadiums to see them and innumerable copycat bands sprang up on MTV and the radio looking to get in on the action. Today the band is still cited as a major influence on most radio metal, with Taproot and Breaking Benjamin being prime examples. Before them it was Alien Ant Farm and, to a degree, even System of a Down. Since their self-titled first album came out in 1994, Korn has had nine consecutive records debut in the Top Ten, one of which was just a greatest-hits collection. Musically, the band has messed with prodigious amounts of funk and hip-hop from the beginning, folding sheets of abrasive noise into the mix and ultimately being identified by Jonathan Davis' soul-baring mania delivered in a stricken yelp-and-growl freakout and James "Munky" Shaffer's banking, spiky guitarwork.

Live in Cologne Germany
Runtime: 1 hr 29 minStaind dove into bleaker recesses than ever before and surfaced with their heaviest and most hypnotic album to date, STAIND, their self-titled, seventh studio album.

There was struggle and strife, but, as a result, Staind constructed a collection of chaotically melodic songs that hearken back to their 1999 major label debut, Dysfunction, while wielding an instrumental and lyrical prowess that could only be cultivated by 16 years of writing, recording, and touring together.
This concert in Cologne Germany is one of just pure raw emotion and the performance is simply amazing. All the songs are sung with emotion drawn on lyrics taken from the lives of these exemplary band members.
